thank you for your answer. Yes I have exactly the same problem as
discussed on stackoverflow but I haven't found a solution yet.
If I print the log of the Toplevel- Makefile which defines the version
information I only see 2 two commits between "Linux 2.6.31-rc1" and
"Linux 2.6.30" on branch "master" (which is the only branch of this
repository) . I think there should be a lot more commits between these
Is there a way to get access to these "hidden" commits which are
somehow striped by the work-flow?
~/linux/git log -n 5 --oneline v2.6.31-rc1 Makefile
28d0325 Linux 2.6.31-rc1
2521f2c gcov: add gcov profiling infrastructure
45e3e19 Merge branch 'master' of
07a2039 Linux 2.6.30
b8b0618 kbuild: remove extra ifdef/endif of top Makefile
